Hear ye! Hear ye! What’s this? Another contest so soon?!

That’s right! In honor of SoSuWriMo 2021, we’ve decided to kickstart some writing juices in the Realm with a thread contest! There are tons of characters and players in New Caledonia, and this is a way that you and your character(s) can meet some of their peers that they don’t know very well or explore areas they aren’t too familiar with.

Those that complete the six (6) challenges listed below will gain one entry in a raffle for… wait for it… a custom avatar, courtesy of San! This contest will see us crowning two winners, so get your SoSu booty to writing! ;D

All participants will receive a temporary 3-month title, so long as they’ve completed at least three thread challenges. They will receive the title of:
Jewel of the North
We hope this helps keep the hype alive for SoSu and earns you some pretties in the process! Happy threading,

Amanda & veldt

Guidelines

  • We're posting this side-contest early so that you can plan for SoSu which will begin in a few days — that being said, however, threads utilizing challenges that were started before January 1st EST will not count. Please do not circumvent regular SoSu guidelines for this side-contest! It is meant to be a fun and engaging challenge to keep things interesting in the pack during the madness of SoSu. <3
  • Challenges 1-6 must be completed in order for your name to be entered into the raffle.
  • The bonus challenge, in addition to challenges 1-6, will get your name entered again for a total of two entries.
  • Threads must be completed by February 1st and submitted by February 3rd to be counted in the raffle.
  • Threads must have hit completion rules (1000 words per character, per thread) to qualify.
  • Threads/first posts should indicate what they are being used for their respective challenge.
  • Threads should be listed alongside said challenges when submitted for easy tracking. Please post your list as a response to this thread with links to your threads!
  • One challenge per thread — in other words, you should be submitting 6 separate threads (plus the 2 bonus threads, if you decide to do so) — but each player does not have to be utilizing the same challenge in the same thread.
    • Eg. Rogue Bat is visiting a territory for the first time, but Gal Pal has never threaded with Rogue Bat before. Each is using a different thread challenge (4 & 2, respectively, to be indicated in their first posts in the thread).
  • Read-Only threads are not allowed! The goal of this contest is to thread interactively with peers of the Realm!
  • Monthly thread prompts, Grand Quest prompts and co-rank progress/prompts, however, are allowed to be used in combination with the below thread challenge; AKA, you’re free to double-up this time around. ;D
  • Players with multiple NC characters are not restricted to one character; threads can be spread across all playable NC characters. However, only NC characters are allowed!
